SMART Tools for Next-Gen Sequencing
Takara Clontech kits for next-generation sequencing (NGS) offer exceptional sensitivity and reproducibility, and with greater confidence in their data, scientists can spend more time pursuing the questions they care about.
What is SMART technology?
The unparalleled sensitivity of SMARTer NGS kits is achieved through the application of SMART (Switching Mechanism at the 5′ end of RNA Template) technology. SMART technology leverages the template-switching capability of a reverse transcriptase (RT) to capture full-length RNA transcripts and incorporate adapter sequences during first-strand cDNA synthesis, such that sequencing libraries can be generated seamlessly via subsequent rounds of PCR amplification. The best-in-class performance of SMART technology has positioned it as a leading solution for ultra-low input RNA-seq.
Why adopt SMART technology?
- Enjoy high sensitivity and reproducibility
- Obtain full-length transcript information for isoform and splice-variant detection
- Prepare high-quality sequencing libraries
- Acquire strand-of-origin information
